    Hello fellow technicians,

    I've been reading Certforums for some time and remember spotting a few desktop deployment specialists around. I have an interview due in couple of weeks for Senior Desktop Engineer, which apart from support would require me to manage the desktop deployment for the organisation.

    I've worked with Symantec Ghost in the past using multicast deployment but we never used it any other than configure pc/ sysprep, take image and restore image. I've played a bit with imagex and dism commands in a lab as part of Win 8 exam study but have no real working experience.

    Can you give me some pointers to help me impress on the day? Have you any resources or suggest. Where to start and what to avoid? All help much appreciated.

    Thanks

    I think you would benefit from looking into SCCM and how the task sequences work.

    Currently I create an image then upload it to an SCCM server where another techie will sort out the task sequence side of things.

    Look into that and you can say you have read up on it etc

    Hi Ed,

    That's interesting, I've never though of SCCM being used for deployment. I'll give it a read and practice image building.

    My interview has been put back due to IT director's availability so there is still time. I appreciate your help.

    Hey Bitek

    If you have a quick flick on youtube you will come across lots of material in regards to this, also if you get the chance look into dism and modifying .wim files as well as microsoft MDT. I havent properly used the latter but that will happen soon.
